Preferred Rewards for Business program details

There are 3 tiers in the Preferred Rewards for Business program. Your tier is based on your 3-month average combined balances in your qualifying Bank of America® business deposit and/or your Merrill Edge® or Merrill Lynch® business investment accounts.

When you are enrolled, you’ll be moved up automatically when your balances qualify you for the next rewards tier. And no need to worry if your balances dip now and then: once you reach a rewards tier, you'll keep your program benefits until the next anniversary of your Preferred Rewards for Business enrollment.
